2021 UK Red Great North Ride

Rugby League Cares took the road less travelled on its annual fundraising challenge in 2021 with a 200-mile coast-to-coast cycling adventure.

Sponsored by UK Red Security and Fire, the UK Red Great North Ride left Whitehaven on Friday September 25 and over the next three days followed a challenging route all the way to the North Sea at Tynemouth.

The UK Red Great North Ride gave participants the opportunity to raise the valuable funds that enable RL Cares to continue making a difference to the lives of people at every level of the rugby league family.

Riders got to spend three memorable and fun days in the saddle cycling alongside rugby league legends including Keith Senior, Mick Cassidy, Robbie Hunter-Paul and Nathan McAvoy.

The ride saw Leeds-based UK Red Security and Fire extend their support for the charity into a fifth year, having sponsored the Rides to Wembley in 2017, 2018 and 2019, as well as directors Kevin Walton and Dean Bettison riding to Paris for RL Cares in 2016.
